In India, a rubber plantation means Tlangnunthang can dream about the future
With the aim to generate sustainable income, Tlangnunthang was one of 1144 beneficiaries who rubber received saplings. "I received 200 saplings. World Vision also facilitated training on managing the plantation. I was taught how to plant the saplings, how deep to dig before planting, and what is the ideal distance between plants, and other processes regarding rubber cultivation," says 38-year-old Tlangnunthang. World Vision helped the community buy a rubber pressing machine, helping them navigate their relationship with the local rubber board and financing the expensive machine.

Living with the disability
Jovana (12), and Dejan (8) are walking approximately one hour, each day from school to their home. The road takes them over the valleys and up the hills, and as it’s one of the final days of a golden fall, weather is still warm enough for a brisk walk.A chilly wind carries the children’s’ chatter down the small mountain stream and Jovana pulls up her hoodie. “It will be much harder during the winter”, she says.
